another muddle

another cold winter night.  looking for a picture to share.  looking for a flower to share.  looking to keep me confused.  must be the cold.  though the confusion is clearing.  the pictures/flowers all around it are in the keeper bed.  so it is moved and saved for a few more years.  and i was worried it was lost somewhere in the garden.  time to take a sed-a-give and finish the post.  three images and a deep sigh…  share the flower not the paranoia !

10 reasons:

  • it is dark tonight and flowers release light
  • it is cold today and flowers carry the memory of warm
  • nature does not need crayons, water, or a brush for its canvas
  • flowers transport us into the garden
  • today red does not mean stop
  • for a moment the petal is a splash
  • or is it a surge ?
  • do not take it apart, put the flower back together
  • it cannot be taken apart
  • it is

wonder

off season wonder.  i see the picture.  and i wonder.  the tag is there.  is there a flag ?  will there be room for the flowers that are flagged ?  when i sit and look at the flowers and wonder dreams these are not the things i think.  however it eventually comes down to this.  there are usually a handful of flowers that are flagged and there is very little doubt.  the rest are in that nebulous gray area – the one where i wonder if they will get lost in the jumble.  then again that would be the garden.  just a little more convoluted than the pretty flowers look.  so here is the wonder of tonight.  three images…  and the cross , a little more decoded and less wonder 13-121 10-014 Prague Spring x Gift Tie ) x Katy’s Blue

found in the garden

what is in the garden ?  well if you are doing it right – you are.  it does not have to be your garden.  it just has to be you in a garden.  any garden.  that includes untended and wild gardens.  sometimes you just have to be there.  see it and feel it.  find it.   tonight this is what is to be found in the digital garden.  a seedling  –   Prague Spring x Gift Tie) x Sally Sue.  two images..

seedling

a bright yellow green throat, a narrow somewhat faint purple eye zone and a creamy slightly pink base petal color, that begins the description of this seedling.  compliment that with long open form petals, and some twist and movement in those petals.  and add just a touch of ruffling along the edge of the petals.  it makes a fairly accurate description of this seedling.  the cross is Prague Spring x Gift Tie.  two images..

a glow for the garden

cross a skinny one with a full bodied one.   repeat again with two different flowers.  now take those two and cross them to each other.  this is what you get.

a sib in pink

sibling competition ?  that might be one way to look at it.  personally i do not think the flowers are the least bit worried about what the gardeners are thinking.  the flowers are just doing what nature intended.  our likes and selections mean nothing except to the gardeners and visitors.  and so we end up comparing one sibling to another.  this seedling is a sibling from a cross shown a few weeks ago.  12-128 Prague Spring x Fol de Rol ) x North Wind Dancer was a little skinnier and a little straighter.  this one is a bit fuller in the width of petals and has a bit more twist.  then again why not look and decide for yourself ?  the flower by itself, the two sibs side by side, and a detail of tonight’s bloom.
